July hottest ever while relief unlikely from typhoon

TODAY made it officially the hottest July in local recorded history after the high reached 39.4 degrees Celsius, the 24th high temperature day this month.

And more is on the way: Tomorrow it's forecast to reach 38 degrees, which would make for 25 high temperature days in July. The previous record was set in July 1873, which saw a total of 23 days with high temperatures above 35.

Making the best out of a hot situation, locals including Netizens and news reporters posted "outdoor barbecue" photos online, showing how different foods, from sliced pork to shrimp to eggs, are quickly cooked under sizzling heat on the street or on a balcony. Some even tried eating the heatwave cuisine to make light out of the oppressive weather.

Typhoon Chebi, the ninth storm this summer, is expected to form soon, bringing heavy rain and gales to parts of the southeast coast of China. Shanghai and nearby areas, however, are expected to get no relief from the storm.
